Miss Universe 2009 - Results!

So Venezuela did it again... for the 6th time and two consecutive years... what a feat! And I got 8 rights plus 1 alternate from my final prediction... not bad huh? And I am not overjoyed by Venezuela's success... Of many countries that have never won the title, still they want to give it to Venezuela... I don't see what's the point... well when it comes to Miss Universe, it's all about politicking and scheming and business since it's owned by business mogul Donald Trump...
So after weeks of close watch and calculating and guessing and predicting on who's gonna take home the crown, at the end of the show, I just didn't care who walked away with the title...

I was watching it (live) and was bored to the point of tears!

Everything was done so boringly.

And the "Miss Photogenic" winner . . . Miss Thailand? COME ON!

And the winner wore way too much red lipstick.

Cik Qirzah...

I took a leave and watch it live too...

To me the boring thing is that the same countries advanced to the Top 5 each year... Miss Universe will lose viewers if they keep doing this...

Miss Photogenic winner was determined by internet voters... And it was a surprise to see Thailand won it this year... usually the winner is Philippines or Puerto Rico since those countries are pageant-crazy and have a lot of internet users...

The winner wore the red lipstick with the exactly same colour as the gown... heheh

Eeee... and I am the one that got blown away with it huhuhu ... nampak sangat lah naive nya I pasal miss universe nie hehehe

but again, i suka dengan puerto rico and dominican republic. puerto rico ... dunno why tapi dominican republic sebab dia nampak intelligently elegant. venezuelan tu sebab, that dress ... its all about that dress ... masa u posted during your prediction entry memang nampak like What The F*** but bila the gown flowing during the sashay .. cantiknya hehehe

Cik Jaime...

Kak Maria nie dah mengikuti perkembangan Miss Universe since 1987... masa tu akak sekolah lagi... so now u boleh kira berapa umur Kak Maria kan...

Miss Dominican Republic tu pernah masuk Miss World 2007 tapi cuma sampai ke peringkat semifinals... Anyway Dominican Republic won its first Miss Universe title back in 2003.

I don't like Puerto Rico this year... I thought she is below par of what Puerto Rico usually sends to Miss Universe pageant. Puerto Rico has 5 Miss Universe... 1970, 1985, 1993, 2001 & 2006.

Jarang sangat pemenang Miss Universe pakai gown warna merah... In recent history, pemenang dengan gown merah only appeared in 1992, 1995 and 2000.

Every year during the finals of Miss Universe I ada contestant favourite yang masuk sampai semifinals or finals tapi x menang... and I rasa diorang patut menang. They are:

2002 - Vanessa Carreira (South Africa)
2003 - Cindy Nell (South Africa)
2004 - Yanina Gonzalez (Paraguay)
2005 - Cynthia Olavarria (Puerto Rico)
2006 - Kurara Chibana (Japan)
2007 - Honey Lee (Korea)
2008 - Elisa Najera (Mexico)
2009 - Marigona Dragusha (Kosovo)

agree on Miss Japan (2006) and Miss Mexico (2008) being rob of her title... first time ke dalam history MU dapat back to back title?

Kak Maria said...

Cik Gorgeous...

This is the first time back to back win in MU history...

Tapi kalau dalam MW, pernah berlaku 3 kali sebelum nie...

1. 1951-1952 (Sweden)
2. 1964-1965 (United Kingdom)
3. 1999-2000 (India)
